Martin Professional at LDI 2006, Las Vegas

At Plasa 2006 Martin Professional introduced several new lighting and fog effects which will also be featured at the Martin's LDI booth (#194). To be launched at LDI are Littlebig, a 3 kW Xenon source in a single arm moving head, Cyclo IP65 Directional, and Exterior 1200 Wash.
The Exterior 1200 Wash is the newest addition to Martin Architectural’s Exterior range of outdoor luminaires. Its powerful 1200W lamp and full range color mixing system with additional four-color wheel make it ideal for dynamic illumination of tall structures, high-rises or any high-visibility architecture. A full range of varying beam angles from 7° to 19° or 12° to 29° provides designers with several options for achieving even and accurate illumination. Intensity control is 0-100%.
Weatherproofed for dynamic outdoor illumination of facades, structures or signage, the Cyclo IP65 Directional is a fluorescent linear luminaire designed to uniformly wash surfaces in color and variable white light. The slim linear design and excellent optical performance are based on RGB and white T5 tubes. The optical module is directional and provides seamless color mixing within the main reflector.
The Littlebig 3.0 is a high powered 3 kW Xenon source in a single arm moving head. Based on the success of the acclaimed BigLite 4.5 Xenon, the Littlebig 3.0 features a compact and modular design to enhance its capability for indoor use. The Littlebig 3.0 offers lighting designers real time CMY color mixing, diffusion with electronic strobe and many other customizable effects. Its energy savings and reduced heat output thanks to a quiet cooling system give a long bulb life of 1500 hours. Fully protected by a fiber composite shell, the Littlebig 3.0 runs its full 630° pan in less than one second.
Originally launched at prolight+sound show 2006, the MAC TW1 is a 1200W tungsten wash fixture offers a twin lens zoom system, full CMY color mixing and choice of internal or external electronic dimming.

It also includes a wide range variable zoom, continuous and indexable beam shaper, and extremely smooth and fast dimmer shutter system.
The Stagebar 54 is a bright, high efficiency LED pixel bar with RGB, Amber and ‘true’ white color mixing (RGBAW) for a broad color spectrum and great range of pastel shades. The Stagebar 54 features an automatic color calibration technique which assures that colors are always balanced to each other and show correctly. Light output is constant, regardless of ambient temperatures, and different lens angles give flexibility and a wider variety of application. Stagebar 54 also features high speed video capability. Mounting, connectivity and serviceability are all made easy and regulated fan speed ensures efficient heat management, ensuring the fixture’s long term performance. Industry standard DMX 512 controllable with HSI (Hue, Saturation, Intensity) control, Stagebar 54 is light weight yet built to withstand the rigors of the touring market. It comes in a small or large version.
A bright semi-transparent LED wall, the Martin LC 2140 LED curtain offers true RGB color illumination and also features the automatic color calibration technique.
